About These Django / Oscar Posts

Time to read: about 3 minutes.

This site is categorized under Django, Django-Oscar.

I was searching for a customizable e-commerce framework for a business case proof of concept, and after a false start I realized that the Django framework, written in Python, was likely the way to go. I felt I would likely be able to add the ERP functionality I needed to a custom implementation of the django-oscar e-commerce framework.

Soon after, I discovered that the django-oscar e-commerce framework, although not without issues, was likely good enough for my needs.

I am documenting my progress on this separate series of posts. This information is written as I learn, but instead of a strictly chronological journal, I continuously reorder and revise the information so it is more easily understood by others. If you are new to Django and / or django-oscar, you should read these posts from the bottom up.
